The American Phytopathological Society is sponsoring a 
Potato Late Blight Workshop. The POTATO LATE BLIGHT 
Workshop provides background information, workshop papers 
on recent research, and discussion groups on this 
disease---and its causal organism Phytophthora 
infestans---which is most famous as the disease that 
caused the IRISH POTATO FAMINE in the late 1840s. In 
addition of being of value to those who are teaching about 
this event in commemoration of its 150th anniversary, the 
workshop is timely because recent strains of the causal 
fungus of late blight have emerged that make it more 
resistant to widely used pesticides.

The workshop can be accessed at http://www.scisoc.org
